Time to revive this as information becomes more reliable.
Discussion with a regional manager who has seen a lot of the HE stuff very recently. He confirmed some of the crazy rumours I had initially laughed at.
HE book October/November
A HE rule - he claimed it was across the board rather than unit specific - HE strike first.... That sounds like such rubbish, but he was adamant.
Also, ithilmar armour is everywhere - Phoenix Guard, Swordmasters, etc. with 4+ saves.
Swordmasters get back their -1 to hit with shooting.
Phoenix Guard are going to be absolutely hard - and he said that shadow warriors are going to be nasty too.
He actually saw the green for the lion chariot - an option in the plastic chariot pack, drawn by lions.
Saw the new commander box - like the Empire one.
No mention of drakeriders.
I was trying to act quite casual about it all, as if I got out my notepad and started going through rumours methodically he might have clammed up.
I should get quite a bit more soon.
Sounds good though.
et ça aussi :
High Elf release: November: Book and Army Box set.
THE BOOK : written by Adam Troke (I presume with input from the rest of the games developers).
Intrigue at court is gone.
Elves strike first. (Army rule).
Archers can fire in two ranks.
Special Characters include (There could be more but I have not heard it) :
Tyrion, Teclis, Eltharion and Alith Anar as Lords
Korhil and Caradryan (Captain of the Phoenix Guard) as Heroes.
There will be three other ‘vanilla’/generic Hero options. (So a new Character type!)
There will be three types of Dragon in the book.
Plastic kits: Mostly by Martin Footit.
Characters/Heroes/Commanders (Makes 2 characters one mounted and one on foot).
High Elf Mages (Makes two mages one mounted and one on foot).
Plastic Dragon kit. (75Hastings69 posted this on warseer months ago. Flying horizontally like the old Dragon Masters dragon (for those who remember that far back). It will come with various rider options to represent different character options who can ride it.
Spearmen. (I do not think this includes option for Lothern Sea Guard or armoured archers but possibly able to customise these to represent different provinces).
High Elf Cavalry Plastics. (These were rumoured months ago by 75Hastings69 but I have heard nothing).
Plastic Chariot kit with option of Lion steeds. (Dave Thomas)
Alith Anar. (Gary Morley).
Possibly a new eagle.
Lothern Sea guard including a Sea guard Captain/Commander with a Sea hawk on his wrist and a standard bearer with a carved wooden leg. The art work for the seaguard is a lot more ‘gritty’ than the old look. (More ‘sea dog’ than Sea Elf!) I don’t know if these are part of a bigger ‘redo’ of the Sea Guard models or not.

et aussi sur les CV :
- Scheduled for fourth quarter 2007 (provided by 75hastings69)
- New metal Necrarch models have been spotted (provided by 75hastings69)
- Expect plenty of new plastic sets
- Rumoured to be getting a unit of ogre-sized Flesh Golem creatures (provided by 75hastings69)
- Gav Thorpe has denied rumours of plastic Ghouls and Dire wolves as well as the existance of a new unit type of Werewolves.
_Gav feels the bloodlines are too restrictive. allusions were made to more customizable vampires. the bloodlines should serve as examples, not restrictions.
Players should be able to have there own individual vampire
_It is now my understanding that the next Vampire counts book will include wraiths not as characters but back as a unit. A great big scarrey terror causing unit.
_Players should be able to have there own individual vampire
_to give the undead a more unified look......and 'Almost everything will be changed'. ( including Skeletons and Ghouls)
En gros ca veut dire :
_Le LA CV est pour le 4ème trimestre 2007
_Il y aurait de nouveau modèles de Nécarques (en métal)
_Beaucoup de nouveau sets plastiques (sans doute pour les persos)
_Une nouvelle unité de la taille des ogres appelée "Flesh Golems"
_Gavin Thorpe aurait nié la présence de goules et de loups en plastiques ainsi qu'une nouvelle unité appelée Loups Garous
_On pourrait "customizer" les vampires, voire de les créer
_Les spectres ne seraient plus des persos mais des unités causant la terreur
_Ils donneraient aux CV un look plus unifié "presque tous sera changé" (les squelettes et les goules par exemples
